In a two-atomic molecule, the atoms interact, they make a system.
Pauli's principle forbids two electrons be in the same state. The energy levels split, you have twice as many levels as in case of a single atom. In a solid or liquid, there are many interacting particles, and the energy levels split to many new ones. But it reflects the material behaviour. It is only the case of "black-body radiation" where the emission at a given wavelength or frequency is function of the temperature alone. But a black body is a special hypothetical material or set-up which absorbs all incident radiation.
Real materials do not do that, but the emission spectrum of some ones can be approximated by the black-body spectrum or proportional to it. Last edited by a moderator: May 6, CWatters Science Advisor. Gold Member. What ehild said.

Didn't this come up in a similar thread only the other week? I think there are multiple misunderstandings here - like what a spectrum actually is, what it represents, that you can have absorption and emission spectra at the same time, the contributing factors to the intensity vs wavelength curves, how spectral lines form, stuff like that. It would be useful to know what level this question is being asked at. Get the energy levels close enough together and they overlap.
You can get transitions between two bands though There's another effect - where you have transitions from the continuum: i. Simplifying somewhat When an electron is no longer bound to an atom, it may still be contained within the apparatus. We can model the apparatus as an infinite square well say so there are still discrete energy levels to transition from The prev-mentioned HUP limit works here too. In a plasma - for instance - the media is so hot that the atoms are totally ionized.
The only available transitions will be between these continuum states rather than atomic states Therefore we'd expect the spectra of a plasma to be continuous and to depend only on it's temperature. It's a pretty big subject. Which is why it is useful to narrow it down.

IV eigenfunction yp may be brought together to form a general quantum- mechanical model of the atom : tm. Using a rather simple mechanical device the author has made photographs of a spinning model which represent time exposures of the hydrogen atom in many other stationary states. Each figure in three-dimensional space is symmetrical about a vertical axis. Photo- graphs for the states with negative m are identical with those of positive m.
The visual or photographic impression of any cloud distribution viewed from the equatorial plane is almost the same as a cross section. A smoke ring, for example, when looked at edge on appears more dense at the ends than in the middle. Urey, "Atoms, Molecules and Quanta," p. C, Phys. T ng mechanical model.

With the introduction of the quantum mechanics the azimuthal quantum number k is replaced by I see Table 4.

As orbital models, c and d are found to be very useful; but as vector models they are objectionable in that they require too many restrictions. Taking all things into con- sideration one finds that certain difficulties are encountered in attempting to represent the quantum-mechanical formulation of the hydrogen-like atom in terms of any one classical model. We are justified, therefore, in Table 4.
This does not in any way imply that the quantum mechanics always leads to the correct result but that in most cases it does agree with experimental observations. Because of the simplicity of the vector model and its general application to complex spectra, even to some of the finest details, model a will be used extensively in the following chap- ters. We shall try, however, to think, in so far as seems advisable in this 1 See Back, E.

Using the values of the associated Legendre polynomials in Table 4. As in Prob. Tabulate values of 9 m. Tabu- late all values computed. Whether any proposed atomic model is correct or not, it now appears that energy levels and energy level diagrams will always remain with us. Returning to the frequency plot of the four chief series of spectrum lines of sodium Fig.
Each spectrum line now becomes an energy level and the diagram takes the form shown at the right in Fig. The lowest level is a sharp or S level, followed by a principal or P level, then another sharp level 8, a diffuse level D, etc. Thus the energy level diagram of sodium consists of a series of sharp, a series of principal, a series of diffuse and a series of fundamental energy levels approaching a common limit. The diagram at the left in Fig.
The superscript in the level notation indicates that the level in question belongs to a doublet system and that it has certain doublet characteristics. The fixed term of these series formulas [see Eqs. Just as the energy level diagrams of Fig. Turning this figure sideways and raising each series until the limits fall together, an energy level diagram is obtained with a singlet sharp level at the bottom. These more complicated diagrams will be taken up in a later chapter.
With this brief introduction to energy level diagrams we shall now turn to Bohr's Aufbauprinzip. This fine structure will be neglected in this chapter but will be taken up in detail in Chap. The periodic table, as it is now frequently formulated, is given in Table 5. The number above each element gives the atomic number Z, and the symbols below give the lowest energy level for that atom. Referring to Fig.
The meaning of the superscripts and the sub- scripts will be given in detail later. Table 5. With quantum numbers assigned to each electron each atom Z in the periodic table is, so far as the extranuclear electrons are concerned, formed by adding one more electron to the atom Z - 1. The quantum numbers to be assigned to this last bound electron are such that the electron in this state is in the most tightly bound state possible.
